This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Livonia, Michigan, Dana Schutz is a painter known for macabre depictions such as autopsies, people eating their body parts, headless animals, and birthing scenes.  She did undergraduate art study at the Cleveland Institute of Art and graduated with an MFA from Columbia's School of Fine Arts in New York in 2002.  That same year, she had a successful gallery show titled "Frank from Observation", in New York City. 

In 2003, her work was entered in the Venice and Prague Biennales, and in 2006, Raphaela Platow, chief curator of the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, organized a traveling exhibition of nearly four dozen works by Schutz.  Included were incongruous paintings with scenes including Bill Gates and other corporate CEOs walking half naked through woods pounding on drums; President George Bush and Condolezza Rice hopelessly entangled in microphone cords; and Mussolini and Stalin fishing on a small, foliage covered lake.

Not surprisingly the paintings of Dana Schutz have received controversial attention, and some collectors gave her very early attention, which concerned some art professionals who feared she was ascending the market ladder too fast.

She works from a 1,000 square foot studio in an industrial loft in Brooklyn near the Gowanus Canal.  She works many hours at a stretch, and gets some of her ideas from the Internet.  Schutz is married to Ryan Johnson, a sculptor, and they live near her studio.

From the time she was a youngster, she exhibited art talent and wass encouraged by her mother, who was a junior high school art teacher.
